From the Desk of the Resident Director
The semester has begun and classes are in full-swing! I remember my days starting off as a freshman, musing to myself, "There are so many things going on!" There are a world of options going on around campus, but here are some highlights coming up for Wilgus Hall.
Homecoming happens from October 5th to October 11th this year, and the overall theme is "UW-Platteville Goes To Hollywood." Each year Wilgus Hall teams up with Melcher Hall, the all-male residence hall, to enter a co-ed team into the awesome competitions. If you want to get involved be sure to check your email and listen for hall announcements - it's great fun and a wonderful chance to meet fellow Pioneers!
If you are looking for other ways to get involved within Wilgus Hall, stop by Hall Council on Monday evenings. Every hall on campus has their own Hall Council which is a great resource for bringing residents together, working towards improving the hall, and building leadership skills within the participants. Wilgus Hall Council has won past campus-wide leadership awards for the amazing programs and engagement we provide, so be sure to stop by and help us be the best we can be.
I hope that you enjoy your time in Wilgus Hall and at UW-Platteville. Your mission, if you're reading this, is to meet someone new who lives on your wing and find at least one shared interest.
Every day is a great day to be a Pioneer,
